Last week I started working on the New Committer Handbook as a resource to help—curiously enough—new committers get up to speed with all those things that they need to know.
It’s still very much a work in progress, but it’s coming along nicely. My ultimate goal is to provide a concise resource that give the reader the baseline of information that they need to know to function as an Eclipse committer. There should be nothing new in the document, but it should (hopefully) be easier to wade through all the stuff one needs to know in order to properly function in that role. The document makes heavy use of pointers to more information.
It’s a bit of a challenge to keep in concise and informative. These goals are generally in opposition to one-another, but I’m trying to strike that balance. I’m sure that it’ll require several iterations before we get it right.
Anyway… feel free to contribute.
